A leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Salman Akorede, has urged leaders of the Amalgamated APC Support Groups to tread with caution and not to overheat the polity.
His appeal came against the backdrop of agitation for federal appointments and recognition from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the APC.
In an interaction with journalists at the weekend, Akorede called for calm and assured the support groups that the party and the administration of Tinubu were sensitive to their concerns.
He said the ongoing interface between the party leadership and officials of government will address the genuine concerns of the groups, and called for patience and calm by members.
Akorede allayed the fears in some quarters about the support groups being abandoned and not getting the recognition that they deserved for contributing to the electoral successes of the party in the 2023 general elections.
The party chieftain, who is one of the prominent names being suggested to lead a new management of the Amalgamated APC Support Groups, that may emerge early next year, following the dissolution of the Dr. Nasiru Ladan/Hajia Maryam Yunusa Danjaki-led exco, is confident that the support groups will get their dues from the party and the federal government.
Besides, Akorede charged members to brace up to elect credible leadership that will reposition the amalgamated support groups for the better, noting that the groups were the most critical pillar of the party.
He promised to give the support groups a new lease of life and credible leadership that is all inclusive and accountable, if offered the opportunity to lead.
